La educación evangélica de Sam Beam

La educación evangélica de Sam Beam

Sam Beam vuelve a sus temas favoritos en el último disco de Iron & Wine: el Sur, la naturaleza, el sexo y la religión. "No soy religioso, pero crecí en el Cinturón Bíblico. Las utilizo porque son historias comunes. La religión es parte de todas nuestras vidas, nos guste o no". La canción original dice exactamente: "But it all came down to you and I But it all came down to you and I There were banged up hens stealing first base underneath the tables so we never sang grace falling out of bed for the workday week there was kissing in the cracks of the flash flood streets there were budding blossoms blaring Johnny Rotten chewed up and swallowed by the prophet they were trying to follow Bit too green and we paid no tax on our quick romantic cul de sac But it all came down to you and I But it all came down to you and I there were crashed out cars in our bark-old clothes they were rubbing on each other rubbing ghost on ghost there were jonesed-up punks and Jesus freaks weaving in and out of trouble wrapping round and round a leash there were sleepless dreamers, doomsday preachers the message and the messenger, gun beneath the register the sweet gum tree by the tough drunk tank we could never give enough to the bad-luck bank there were hopeless sinners, sweepstake winners they danced with the farmer’s daughter, capered with the corporate lawyers But it all came down to you and I But it all came down to you and I But it all came down to you and I But it all came down to you and I There was laughing in the light, sugar in the shade there were backstab handshakes made on faith we were never out of time and we never entertained anybody said out of habit that the wind was going to change there were misled misfits, teething biscuits fountains full of penny wishes, parties full of pretty dishes side by side with the birds and bees and we never sang grace and never ever took a knee with the saints and ramblers, movie star handlers high above the aviary, underneath the cemetery and we never wondered why, ‘cause the sun was in our eyes there was seed for the field, there was grease for the wheel we were drinking with the luminaries, eating with the missionaries. But it all came down to you and I But it all came down to you and I But it all came down to you and I But it all came down to you and I"
